Momento Mori: A Portrait Collection

Laura Wixson's avatar Laura Wixson

**There are ten portraits total, only 4 are shown** Momento Mori: A Portrait Collection is a series of stylized and thematic character portraits and poems. Each poem is an insight into the story of the model portrayed. They range from a single moment in time to a synopsis of the character as a whole. The themes are based on my own personal fears, beliefs, dreams, and interests, with mythological/religious and historical references. From fairy-tales gone wrong to The Lady in Black, and Purgatory and Ancient Greece to the Horsemen of the Apocalypse. In addition each set has an era of inspiration for the character with handmade wardrobe and styling drawn from the time period.
